It was gathered that the youth organized a carnival and the creaminess dragged beyond 10pm. The security unit was said to have asked them to end the event, but some youths insisted on going ahead with it. This was said to have led to an altercation.

A source who spoke to Nigerian Tribune, said that Amotekun operatives started firing indiscriminately and in the ensuing melee, their bullets hit about five boys at different locations, leading to the death of two young boys. The victims are one Razak Odugbemi ,20, of Olukotun compound, Tapa, whose parent claimed was at the veranda of their house when the bullets hit him.

The second victim was a 20-year-old Lekan Ogunlade, both of whom were confirmed dead at General hospital, Ayete, while three others have been transferred to the various hospital at Igboora after sustaining various degrees of injuries.

However, speaking on the incident, the Commandant of Amotekun Security Corps in Oyo State, Colonel Olayinka Olayanju (rtd) confirmed the incident, saying personnel of the security outfit responded to gunshots fired at them by the boys.
